MEDIA REVIEWS
"I know of no other work that so insightfully captures the grieving spirit of Catholic priests in the current vale of tears wrought by the clergy abuse scandals. The Long Dark Winter's Night gives way to the morning light of hope that always follows honest grieving. In his poetic prose, Patrick Bergquist grieves for us all." -- Donald Cozzens
The author is a realist, a poet, a pastor of delicacy and sensitivity. The depth of his response is subtle, passionate, pastorally accurate, and it is communicated in a prayerful manner. We can read his prophetic words and learn much about what it means to sin, and what it means to have a personal relationship with the Christ of the Cross. Champagnat
Fr. Bergquist's book is written with compassion and insight signaling that what lies at the heart of this matter is the very meaning of priesthood itself. The Long Dark Winter's Night is a very timely gift from a priest to his church. In the Vineyard
"This poetic volume weaves together the survivors' stories, laced with, sadness, candor and hope. A must-read. NFPC This Week
The Long Dark Winter's Night is certainly a book for priests and for all the baptized. It doesn't provide ABC answers, but it does tell one priest's journey. And he tries to express the pain and feeling of the Church we live in. In the pain, Father Patrick Bergquist gives hope.Inland Register
Read and heed his words, laity and clergy alike, and be graced.The American Catholic
Fr. Bergquist's book is the best response I ever read to the shocking revelations of the sexual scandals of the clergy of our times, and from the Church's best source--one of its hard-working pastors on the front line of its ministries! His shock, rage, compassion for all, and enduring faith, hope, and love speak for all of us priests and for the entire Body of Christ Jesus, our Church.Father Armand M. Nigro, SJ Professor Emeritus of Gonzaga University Spokane, Washington
The Long Dark Winter's Night is an important contribution to understanding the heart of the clergy crisis in the United States. No other priest has so far addressed the problems of clergy abuse more honestly or with more passion and compassion than Patrick Bergquist. He presents his cause in elegant prose and the free use of poetic voices that make his propositions not only palatable, but deeply inspiring.A.W.
